Australia’s first ready-to-drink sparkling matcha has just hit the market sending matcha lovers into a tailspin.

Launching with four delicious flavours– ginger, apple, yuzu, and lychee – Motive Matcha is here to shake up the health and wellness industry by giving consumers a new, and oh-so-tasty, way to enjoy the benefits of matcha sugar-free and on-the-go.

Matcha is well-known for providing mental clarity and boosting metabolism, making it a healthy pick-me-up for any time of the day. With no sugar and only seven calories a bottle, this new kid on the health block is a guilt-free alternative to sodas, flavoured waters, and sugar-packed RTDs.

By consuming just one bottle of Matcha, the reported health benefits are equal to as much as 10 cups of regular green tea.

Motive Matcha is scientifically formulated using ceremonial matcha sourced from biodynamic farms and while a traditional matcha tea can be fiddly to make and require added milk and sugars, Motive Matcha provides a convenient, accessible, and sugar-free alternative.

You can get your hands on one via the website. Each bottle costs $5.50 or an exclusive online carton of 12 can be purchased for $48.

Mad Mex’s New Menu Item Is Inspired by a Popular Mexican Street Food

mad mex chicken al pastor

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.

Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.

You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.

As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
